I assume you all just don't dump it down the sink
For us in Washington state most part supply houses have auto fluid disposal location or if you know a good indy shop and are nice they will let you dispose of as well.

In Massachusetts you can take it to your local Advanced Auto Parts or Wal-Mart. They just ask you to fill out a form (not sure why but it's so easy I dont bother asking)

Not sure how a swap would work, given that the seat buttons would be on the wrong side. There are probably other alignment issues as well.
